Winemaker Notes

"The" Cab was hand picked and sorted fruit from the best vineyards in Lodi. The Cab started fermentation in stainless steel tanks and used an aerative pump over system to extend the maceration cycle for better richness and mouthfeel.

Blend: 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot, 1% Cabernet Franc

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WW 88
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
The 2010 Cosentino Winery THE CAB is pretty good and would do famously with a salad of butter lettuce, charred steak and bacon bits, light lemon dressing and fresh cracked black pepper. Medium garnet ruby color; fruity and very woody in the nose; medium bodied, firm on the palate; dry, medium acidity, good balance; tar and black fruit in the flavors with a hit of wood; medium finish, wood tannins in the aftertaste. (Tasted: June 26, 2015, San Francisco, CA)

Cosentino, Lodi, California
Image of winery
Cosentino has been a California producer of ultra-premium wines for 23 years and in the Napa Valley for 13 years. Founded by Mitch Cosentino, the winery is known for its small, distinctive vineyard lots and "micro" approach to winemaking. Cosentino's respect for traditional methods, such as punched cap fermentation, has resulted in a somewhat non-traditional approach. The winery produces more than 30 limited production wines from more than 15 varietals.

With a distinctly Mediterranean climate featuring warm days and cool nights, the Lodi AVA in California’s Central Valley provides growers with ideal conditions for grape-growing. As most of the rain falls in winter months while vines are dormant, the risk of disease and pest problems is low and irrigation can make up for the dry conditions during harvest.

By a wide margin, Zinfandel is the most successful and widely planted variety in Lodi. Often made from old vines, these wines are robust and fleshy with ripe, plummy fruit and represent excellent value at the lower end of the price spectrum. Over 100 other varieties are grown here, ranging from the classic (Merlot, Chardonnay) to the obscure and experimental (Portugal’s Touriga Nacional, France's Picqpoul).

Cabernet Sauvignon

View all wine

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon is sometimes referred to as the “king” of red grapes. It can be somewhat unapproachable early in its youth but has the potential to age beautifully, with the ability to last fifty years or more at its best. Small berries and tough skins provide its trademark firm tannic grip, while high acidity helps to keep the wine fresh for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in temperate climates like Bordeaux's Medoc region (and in St-Emillion and Pomerol, where it plays a supporting role to Merlot). The top Médoc producers use Cabernet Sauvignon for their wine’s backbone, blending it with Merlot and smaller amounts of Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and/or Petit Verdot. On its own, Cabernet Sauvignon has enjoyed great success throughout the world, particularly in the Napa Valley, and is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and sought-after “cult” wines.

In the Glass

High in color, tannin, and extract, Cabernet Sauvignon expresses notes of blackberry, cassis, plum, currant, spice, and tobacco. In Bordeaux and elsewhere in the Old World you'll find the more earthy, tannic side of Cabernet, where it's typically blended to soften tannins and add complexity. In warmer regions like California and Australia, you can typically expect more ripe fruit flavors upfront.

Perfect Pairings

Cabernet Sauvignon is right at home with rich, intense meat dishes—beef, lamb, and venison, in particular—where its opulent fruit and decisive tannins make an equal match to the dense protein of the meat. With a mature Cabernet, opt for tender, slow-cooked meat dishes.

Sommelier Secrets

Despite the modern importance and ubiquity of Cabernet Sauvignon, it is actually a relatively young variety. In 1997, DNA revealed the grape to be a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc which took place in 17th century southwestern France.
